VIDEO: Alan Grayson Interrupts Republican District Meeting

On Thursday, April 8th, 2010, Congressman Alan Grayson, Democrat in Florida’s 8th district, interrupted a district meeting of the local Orange County Republican Executive Committee.  The meeting was being held at Perkins, a family restaurant.

Unanswered question: How did Alan Grayson know about this meeting?  Who informed him?  Was this staged?

Matthew Falconer, candidate for Orange County Mayor, quickly challenged Alan’s rudeness.  Grayson demanded not to be interrupted, but Falconer quickly reminded the congressman that he is in fact interrupting their meeting. 

Linda O’Keefe, member of the Orange County Republican Executive Committee and extraordinary patriot volunteer with the Orlando Tea Party said, “I’m wondering if Grayson realizes that we do still, for now, have the right to assemble! But can’t we have a meeting without being interrupted by our congressman?”

Currently, there are 12 Republican candidates looking to send Alan Grayson to the unemployment line in November.

Tom Tillison of the Tea Party Patriots Live radio show and the Orlando Tea Party, had quite a lively discussion with Alan afterwards for 10 minutes.  Tillison said, “I let him know that he’s a congressman and he needs to act like one.  I reminded him that these are his constinuents.” Tillison asked Grayson, “Don’t you feel that you at least owe them an explanation for your recent votes?”, to which Alan replied, “I don’t owe them anything, they’re trying to defeat me.” 

Tillison followed, “You are a U.S. Congressman and you approach these people acting like a thug.”….to which Grayson responded that he was “being attacked.” 

Congrerssman Alan Grayson said, “There are 308 million people that pay my salary. Do you know what that breaks down to per person?” After Tom shrugged his shoulders insinuating ‘I don’t know’, Grayson repeatd the question with emphasis.  Tom quickly replied, “I have no idea”. ”It’s pennies on the dollar”, said Grayson.  He later said, “I took a pay cut when I took this job”.

Grayson threatened Falconer by saying that he’ll spend thousands of dollars making sure he doesn’t get elected. Question: Is it legal or atleast unethical for a sitting congressman to threaten to influence a local election?  Why is Matt Falconer, running for local Mayor, even on the radar of Alan Grayson?

We’ll talk with Tom Tillison and Matthew Falconer about their discussion in detail during tomorrow’s radio show heard from 4-6pm EST on 660AM WORL in Orlando, or streaming live at http://www.TeaPartyPatriotsLive.com.  Matt Falconer will be joining us in-studio.

Matthew Falconer, early Friday, released this statement:

“On Thursday April 8th I was attending a meeting of the Orange County Republican Executive Committee at a Perkins Family Restaurant in Windermere. About 30 Republicans were meeting when Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson barged into our meeting ranting about how we put spies into an Organizing for America meeting.

As I was sitting with Orange County Republican Chairman Lew Oliver, I stood up to Grayson and demand he apologize to Lew for the vial comments he made recently (Grayson said “Lew Oliver could not find a $20 bill if it was stuck in his A**”). Grayson yelled at me for interrupting him when I reminded Grayson he was interrupting our meeting.

The conflict was caught on video showing Alan Grayson, a U.S. Congressman, standing in the middle of a family restaurant screaming at his constituents. Politics aside, I do not think the man has the emotional stability or integrity to represent us in the U.S. Congress.

Grayson pledged to use his own personal funds to defeat me in my race for Orange County Mayor (supporting his Democratic friend Bill Segal). He then told me to get my “a** out of his face.”

I am in awe of the lack of respect he showed for the customers of this restaurant and his constituents.”

Fortunately, one of the attendees grabbed their phone and recorded Alan Grayson displaying his class to his constituents.

In another video, Alan Grayson (at 3:00 in the video) challenged the female recording the video and abruptly leaves.

Question to be answered:  How did Alan Grayson hear about the meeting?

  1. Tom, please thank Matthew for confronting this neo Trotskyist. He is running scared. Thank you Tom for reminding him he represents his constituents. His answer that he is paid by 308 million people is true– what is also true is that he swore an oath of office administered in the Congress to represent the people of his district for that salary. This self appointed arrogant ass thinks he is a “national” figure because of his pay. He has violated the oath of his office by this very admission, and of course by his votes for things his district definitely does not want. He needs to be run out of town on a rail. Lets give Grayson a pay raise- let’s kick him back to Brooklyn where there is more opportunity for him to “make money”. Thanks

  2. This proves once again Democrats are rude, arrogrant, and just mean spirited. They continue to prove they are what they claim others are. They claim Republicans are mean spirited, but when you pull the covers back who is actually mean spirited? It’s the Democrats and that should not be a surprise to anyone.

    If Grayson is a ‘neo-Trotskyist’… why would he be concerned with making money like the rest of us enthusiastic capitalists instead of living off his government salary?

    Yet more uninformed partisan hyperbole.

  4. Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

  5. Grayson, what a joke! This guy is so creepy he makes my skin crawl. Looks like he does not like to be taped, he ran for the door…lol

  6. I like his tie… I wonder if it helps him feel more American considering he clearly has no understanding of our constitution.

  7. Good for Alan Grayson — he knows what you Republicans are up to – which is definitely no good for this beloved country of ours – you are racist and all your acts are acts of racism. Since you so “sincerely” believe in our United States Constitution, then I highly suggest that you read it and digest it, if it is possible for any of you so called tea partiers to be able to do that. You are just anarchists of the worst kind and are allowed to be so because of the Constitution.

    you are ridiculous. racist? really? really? seriously where does this come from? so random, uneducated and just flat wrong. why dont you direct your hate for people towards helping people and making the situation better. also most people who pull the racist card, are in fact, racists themselves.

  23. Why are there so many identical comments? Is there a robot being used to post these comments?

    Long ago I lived in Orlando, went to Rolling Hills Elementary. I pray folks there vote this Grayson “gorilla” out of the Congress.
